Quote from The Telegraph:

"Informing the thousands of delegates and journalists present of how China's economy has practically doubled in the last five years - combined with details of scarcely believable construction feats such as the building of 31 airports in the same time period - Wen Jiabao made a 'dignified exit' without 'a lot of emotion'."

"In terms of his legacy and how people perceive him, there is a general appreciation for him," Malcolm Moore, The Telegraph's Beijing Correspondent, said.

"I think that is tempered with the realisation that actually as one person he may not have achieved everything he may have wanted to."
